Investment & Funds

Investment Criteria

Norfin invests exclusively in real estate risk/assets in an unlisted/illiquid form, typically being the majority or the sole investor. 

While we normally focus in moderate risk profiles, we differentiate ourselves by engaging in higher risk/return investment strategies in two areas where we possess an extensive track record:

  • Capacity to underwrite and manage development and refurbishment projects.
  • Capacity to underwrite and manage large multi-sector granular portfolios. 

Norfin has extensive experience both in commercial (mostly offices and logistics) and residential sectors. We currently have one of the largest REO investment/management platforms in Portugal with over 6,000 REO assets.
